1. I went to Borders today, too.
Didn't buy any books, but returned a Christmas gift.

Then I realized that Borders was having a "Buy Three, Get one for Free" DVD sale.

So since I was returning a Christmas gift, I got 4 DVDs for the price of two.

Glad you had a pleasant day at Borders as well.

2. I noticed the DVD sale, but I didn't have any money left on the
gift card after I got the books.

I could spend hours and hours in a bookstore!

5. I was returning the "Family Guy" board game for something that I would actually appreciate.
And I saw they were having the DVD sale.

Long story short, I love how my Christian sister-in-law paid for my DVD of "TransAmerica".

10. I'm halfway through his first one, "Dreams From My Father", and
it's very good. It's basically an autobiography. He's a good writer. BTW, if you haven't, check your PM again.
